Tuesday, Feb. 20 - 6:34 a.m.
Sheldon ISD administrators were notified last night that a student had posted a message on social media that could be perceived as a threat against C. E. King Middle School. This morning, the district has decided to take an immediate course of action by conducting a compliance check at KMS.
During the compliance check, students will be checked for prohibitive items by staff members, and law enforcement will on hand and part of the process.
Sheldon ISD continues to err on the side of caution for the safety and security of its students and staff members by taking all potential threats and/or allegations seriously. Those responsible for falsifying information will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Parents, also please take this time to talk to your students and explain to them the serious consequences for falsifying information – especially in light of some of the horrific events that have recently happened at public school districts throughout the nation.
This month, all SISD students will be asked to complete a two question survey regarding their situation during Hurricane Harvey. This information will be sent to the Texas Education Agency as it continues to determine the extent that communities and schools were impacted by Harvey. If you would like additional information about the survey, please contact J.R. Webster, Director of Student Services, at 281-727-2013.
If you are the parent of a home schooled high school student who would be zoned to C. E. King High School or have a current student at KHS and would like your child to take one of the AP exams listed below, please contact Jessica Holt, Testing Coordinator, at (281) 727-3541 or firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, March 2, 2018, to register and pay for your child’s exam(s).
The C. E. King Panthers football was named a finalist in Class 6A by the Texas Association of Sports Officials (Houston Chapter) at last week's 13th Annual Comerica Bank Sportsmanship Luncheon, sponsored by The Fellowship of Christian Athletes at The Touchdown Club in Houston.
On January 25, 2018, KHS ninth and tenth grade students and their parents attended the Close KNIT (King Nurses in Training) Kick-off. The dual credit program, a partnership with Harris County Public Health and San Jacinto College, allows students to complete up to 34 college hours in the nursing field of study while experiencing hands-on learning experiences via health science classes and the Harris County mobile medical unit.
Sheldon ISD released four revised school year calendars today - which includes the following revisions: full instructional days on Feb. 19, April 2, May 31 and June 1. The reason these calendars had to be revised was to compensate the inclement weather days we have experienced so far this school year.
Sheldon Early College High School and KHS STEM applications for the 2018-2019 school year are now available. Interested 8th graders must submit their applications to their middle school counselors no later than 4 PM on February 9, 2018.
All Sheldon ISD students and staff members will return to school on Thursday, January 18. Parents, please be sure to dress your children appropriately as temperatures are expected to remain low during the day.
Also, since C. E. King Middle School students and staff will be returning to their home campus on Thursday, start and end times for the instructional day have changed one final time at all of our elementary campuses as well as Sheldon ECA and Null Middle School.
Here are the new times: elementary schools will be 7:55 a.m.-3:25 p.m.; both ECAs are 7:10 a.m.-2:50 p.m.; both middle schools are 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; and KHS/ECHS will be 7:05 a.m.-2:45p.m. KASE has two sessions – 7:05 a.m.-11:05 a.m. and 11:35 a.m.-3:35 p.m. All of these times are posted on the district’s website at www.sheldonisd.com in case you need to look them up again.
